Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Bacon Wrapped Tater Bombs)

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. I have a great treat for everyone today. Occasionally my boss brings in some little sausages that she wraps in bacon, dusts with brown sugar, and then bakes until they’re done. They’re always a huge hit and highly requested. Recently I found this recipe that I have for you today and it reminded me of those little sausages so of course I had to give it a try. The brown sugar caramelizes nicely on the bacon giving plain tater tots a sweet crispy twist and of course the cheese sandwiched between the bacon and tater tot just elevates the flavor even more. My only warning about these is that they will disappear quickly and you’ll be requested to make them anytime you have a get-together with friends and family. Give these a try and you’ll see what I mean. As always, feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss a single new post.

Bacon Wrapped Tater Bombs

  • 1/2 bag Frozen Tater Tots, at room temperature
  • 1 pkg (8 oz) Sharp Cheddar Cheese, cut into 1/4-inch squares
  • 1 pkg (16 oz) Bacon, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • Toothpicks

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F; line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
2. Working one at a time, cut a tater tot nearly in half to open it up, sandwich a small cheese square between the 2 tater tot halves, then wrap the whole thing in bacon and secure it with a toothpick; repeat with the remaining tater tots.
3. Roll each tater tot in the brown sugar until thoroughly coated and place them seam side down onto the prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake the tater tots in the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes (depends on the thickness of bacon), turning each tater tot half way through cooking; serve hot with dipping sauce of your choice or just as they are.
